Life is great, but sometimes you get dumped, fired and/or evicted. Sometimes all at once, or sometimes it creeps on you slowly, one at a time like Chinese water torture.

Whatever the situation is, when sad hits, and you feel you must wallow, then you must wallow. Only then will your soul be free.

You also must always have ice cream on hand. And these songs.
